Taking Stock

Since late 2023, Manchester Art Gallery has been Taking Stock of its collection. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to review the Gallery’s collection, much of which has rarely or never been on display. Over the next 12 months Gallery 17 will be transformed into an ‘open store’ – a space to review, evaluate and rethink over 6600 objects, including paintings, works on paper, ceramics, glass and sculpture.
